An undiscovered gem

"Long before Whitney Houston recorded Dolly Parton's "I Will Always Love You" Bettye Swann was recording songs like "Today I Started Loving You Again" and "Sweet Dreams" bluring the lines between Nashville country and Memphis soul.
This album is highly recommended!"
Bettye Swann - Quite possibly the greatest R&B soul singer t

"I have never listened to Bettye Swann sing a song that I didn't think was better than, or at least as good as, any other interpretation of that song or genre in existence. It sounds too good to be true, but man, don't let it pass you by. You'll be in on the secret if you pick up this truly life-changing Astralwerks release. No, seriously though. She's unbelievable. My favorite songs are "I'm Lonely for You," "Willie and Laura Mae," and "Stand By Your Man," although it's a tough call since they are all so incredible that it will blow your mind. Yes, mind-blowing; that's Bettye!"
